Review of Tell Them It Was Mozart , Manitoba Book Awards, April 22, 2017

Juries’ comments for the Lansdowne Prize for Poetry

Angeline Schellenberg’s debut collection of poems is defiant. She delicately and imaginatively manages to present a whole singular story of a mother raising two children at varying degrees on the autism spectrum. From titles to page turns and character counts to spaces in-between words, Tell Them It Was Mozart is so much more than poetry. This collections transcends its genre and Angeline is truly a talented writer.
